It's reasonable. Especially with Japan numbers improving week over week. NA will follow suit. It is only in the EU that the Wii U faces a rather steep uphill climb.

The WiiU is having a holiday boost in Japan, do you really think it can keep those numbers once the holidays end? And why is NA going to "follow suit"? Give me a single reason why the WiiU is going to start improving in the US. 

Yes on both accounts. Games and lots of them. Also that upcoming January Nintendo Direct is going to be awesome.

What are these lots of games u speak of? As of now the only game confirmed for Q1 is Donkey Kong

On topic: 7.5m to 8m WiiU's sold by March 31st 2014

The entire year of 2013 sales will be about 3m give or take a few 100k putting It at about 5.5m. 

u think it will come close to that in just Q1 of next year?

 

 

I think next year will be much better than this one was but ur prediction is waaaayyy to extreme.

 

I meant in total. Sorry for the confusion.

I don't think he was confused.  The Wii U is just over 5 million with only one more full week of 2013 tracking to go.  Historically a week ending several days after Christmas tends to see sales drop.  We don't have much in the way of official numbers for the week ending the 28th, but we have gotten the percent changes for some software in the UK, and they were all down.

With that in mind, the Wii U will likely be at less than 5.4m next week.  That would leave 2.6m or more for the first three months of next year to hit the top end of your prediction.  In comparison, the full year of 2013 will end up being somewhere around 3.1m.  It took the Wii U 51 weeks in 2013 to hit 2.6 million for the year.  Sales would need to be up YoY by about 333% for that quarter.  Average weekly sales of 200k, an amount the Wii U has only managed on Black Friday and in December.

Unrelated, but apparently the yearly charts update the yearly amount, but not the total if all the charts aren't out yet.  Made the numbers very confusing for a minute.

 A few questions:


Why doesn't Nintendo have cross buy yet?

Because Nintendo wants people to buy Smash Bros twice. Shocking isn't it, that Nintendo can be a bit greedy at times. 

and why does Nintendo's internal micromanaging makes their decision making process slower?

Lucas will tell you that they are perfectionists, the reality is that they're confused and still not sure why people aren't buying the WiiU in droves. 

Alot of great trivia I did not know in this post. Very refreshing from the usual doom n gloom and cult nonsense. MOAR plz!

What does this trivia have anything to do with the topic at hand? This is the problem with Lucas' posts, he spends so much time talking about things that are completely irrelevant. None of that matters. Why don't we talk about the WiiU's sales? Or any of his predictions? 





Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

I know what u meant. Like I said the entire year of 2013 Wii U sold roughly 3m and u think it will sell close to that in just 3 months this year

Greedy? Feels more like a smart business decision.

Yes on both counts. The Gamepad is a nice accessory but I feel the Wii U would sell more if it included a Wiimote and nuchuk as well.

It's relevant to me. I could care less what you think about it. Re:sales, Why should he bore us to death with a diluge of numbers when you, Seece and many others do it so well. Re: Predictions, Have you been reading any of his rebuttals or are you casually glancing over them and only focussing on the negatives without regarding the positives?

I don't think it will, I know it will. In 3 and a half weeks Nintendo show you how. #BecauseitsNintendo

LOL so because it's a smart business decision it doesn't make them greedy?? Right ....

I'm pretty sure, no, I'm 100% sure i f the numbers were in WiiU's faovur you would both be posting weekly updates. Look at his original thread, it was all about the numbers. This time around the numbers aren't in your favour and oh look, you're both ignoring them and claiming they don't matter. Have you listen to yourself?

The numbers are the only thing keeping this thread going dude, because they're the only thing that tells us if the OP is true/false, happening/not happening. You, JL and others are so desperate for people to stop posting numbers and to engage in the pointless debating you do (which none of you are very good at anyway, you just talk about irrelevent stuff and deflect when asked a tough question).

But alas, I and others will continue with the numbers, and they'll continue to disappoint you I'm sure.

"I don't think it will, I know it will. In 3 and a half weeks Nintendo show you how. #BecauseitsNintendo"

Oh good, least we don't have long to proove you wrong on this one.

You're expecting on average, 300k per region per month.

Struggles to 220k in November with Super Mario 3D and Black Friday, gets 300k in January, February and March.

Perfect sense.



 

I think that the post:

"I don't think it will, I know it will. In 3 and a half weeks Nintendo show you how. #BecauseitsNintendo"

Wasn't meant to be taken seriously.
